Ok here is a question, with an answer no one knows for sure

Can you for example fly international from here to SG, and then land and just walk to your departure gate for your next flight out internationally, as per transit, but without having to go through immigration.

With 2 seperate tickets and PRN BUT already checked in and boarding card too

Technically it can be done, I know, of course it is a transit between 2 international "connecting" flights

But in light of recent SG quaranine issues and having to renew visas, kitas etc etc how can you do it through SG?

2nd question, if you fly to KL as of today / tomorrow, can you come back without quarantine or are they now also making you self isolate for 14 days in a hotel room?

Govt, immigration, agent, airline, facebook all have a different answer

As far as I know, you can still transit in Changi, i.e. not leave the int'l terminal area.

But just about anyone who has been in any ASEAN country in the last 14 days and wants to enter Singapore (even if it's just an in and out for a visa), will have to self-quarantine 14 days. They will also need proof of accommodation for the 14 days.

For ASEAN citizens travel to Singapore also now requires a pre-authorization (esentially a visa), from Singapore embassy abroad.

More information about current policies:

Of course it depends where they provide and -more importantly- check those SHN documents. Is it at debarking and boarding the plane? More probably, at the Immigration & customs check?

Perhaps that necessary pre-approval at the embassy is to avoid a possible loophole that SP describes?

Yes, since I posted, SG is now closed, so forget it, not even worth the risk to be stuck there for 14 days
